ARA Grob G520T Egrett aircraft - Manchester Forward Scattering Spectroscopy Probe (FSSP) data for the CWVC EMERALD Campaign
The EMERALD projects were airborne measurement campaigns designed to study dynamical, microphysical and infra-red radiative properties of cirrus clouds, using both in-situ and remote measurement techniques. The dataset contains static air temperature, static air pressure, relative humidity, water vapour mixing ratio, and ozone mixing ratio. These data are part of the NERC Clouds, Water Vapour and Climate (CWVC) programme.

Data were collected by two instrumented aircrafts were used during these projects, both operated by Airborne Research Australia, a Beech B200T Super King Air and the Grob Egrett T520, based in Adelaide during September 2001, and based in Darwin during November and December 2002. Jim Whiteway (Univeristy of Wales, Aberystwyth) supplied the dataset to the BADC as is.
Availability of data and file format
Data are stored in the BADC CWVC EMERALD project data archive.
The campaign results are briefly presented on the UMIST EMERALD website.
